in history from the stevens family. i will never forget what a great experience it was to live with those two guys. moving on to his study habits, everyone knew how brilliant he was, an enlightened manner. he was truly the smartest man in the room but never comported himself that way. he was confident and outgoing. never arrogant. always self-effacing, quick with a laugh or grin. always looking for ways to learn something from everyone else around him. he was no surprise considering chris came from such good stock. chris studied western civilizations and immerses himselfs in cultures and languages and took multiple trips to study abroad in spain, italy, morocco. perhaps most importantly chris knew how to relax and enjoy the moment. when i would periodically freak out about my course work or some o ther problem i thought i had he would make me stop and take a break, play a game of back gammon on the balcony and enjoy the view. it was an early lesson in the zenlike mindfulness of chris. no wonder he exceled in such a challenging and stressful career. i don't want you to think chris was perfect.

that every member of this committee felt the loss of ambassador chris stevens and his team in a very perm way. we knew him well before he came before us for con confirmation. he appeared for senator lugar and the committee. we knew of the depths of his character, intelligence, and dedication. his death was a horrible blow in personal terms to the committee as well as to the country and his family. it evoked an outpouring of emotion from our committee in the office to the capitol to the private gestures of members of this committee who shared their grief in private ways at senate 116, signing the books, touching the picture, saying a prayer. equally tragic was the loss of three courageous men, whom i have personally never met, but whose families i had a chance to greet and hug when the military brought their loved ones' remains back to andrews air force base. that brought home the impact of our nation's loss. glenn was a former navy seal, also, from my home state, and i talked a couple times with his family. woods was a former seal, shawn smith, and air force veteran, all people for whom servi
